Query in a subform

Query in a subform

Query in a subform

I have developed a form, that based on a selection in a textbox, lists values in a listboks. This works fine.
I have also a subform in my form, that uses the same query, based on a selection in another textbox, belonging to this subform. When I try to run this, I get a "Enter Parameter Value" - msgbox. This does not happen with the mainform.
What can I do to stop this msgbox from appering??

RE: Query in a subform

If the textbox the subform is using is on the subform, then you have to refer to it in the query via the main form.  As in:

If you refer to the textbox through the subform(forms!frmSubForm!txtTextBoxOnSubform), the query does not recognize the name, assumes it is a parameter, and asks you to supply it.


RE: Query in a subform

Thanks a lot!
Now it is working propperly!!
